Patricia, age 76 – “At first I was hesitant to participate in this art class because I’m not a crafty person. But I am so happy I took this big step. This class has been a fun way for me to express myself thru art. When I’m painting, I only think about each stroke. It is a form of therapy for me. I love sharing these paintings with my grandchildren.”
